“I have found that with every adversity, we get more rooted in our purpose.”

Those are wise words from my friend Carey Conley

If there’s one person who knows how to keep looking up in the face of adversity, it’s Carey.

In a NEW episode of The Women’s Eye podcast,

I chat with Carey – who is also a speaker, vision leader and personal coach.

Given the challenges we are all facing right now with COVID-19, I can’t think of a better time for a conversation about how we can stay focused, positive, and forward thinking.

Carey shares how she helps people create a clear vision, which leads to purpose.

While your vision can change, she believes the vision for your purpose does not.

“That’s because when you write who you want to become and who you want to serve in this world, those things are non-negotiable,” she says.

Carey tells me why getting rooted in our vision can help us weather the storms of life.

She also shares the traumatic loss of losing her husband and son to suicide and how she was able to feel joy again without the pain.

 Plus, Carey talks about the personal and moving book that she and her daughter co-authored, “Keep Looking Up: Transforming Grief into Hope after Tragedy,” to provide the inspirational lessons they’ve learned in their journey.

Carey’s messages of hope, joy and vision are exactly what I needed to hear right now.

I’m sure you’ll agree
